Two of my bosses will be having dinner in Montreal on Wed., Oct. 19th. One of them asked me to research restaurants for them as I am his go-to person for that in the U.S. Unfortunately, I've never been to Montreal. I've done some searching on this board and several others -- am overwhelmed by the choices. Wondered if I could receive some recommendations possibly?
Their criteria would be:
- Not too far from their hotel, the downtown Intercontinental.
- Good wine list.
- Good food but not so gourmet they will go away hungry. Maybe upscale bistro would be a good description.
Below is the list that I've accumulated thus far:
Graziella (upscale? Italian)
Mas des Oliviers (traditional southern French)
Decca 77 (good wine list)
Au Pied de Cochon (may be too unique (i.e. "slabs of meat" review)
Lemeac (good wine list)
L'Express Bistro (also nice wine list)
Chez Queux (old fashioned French meal)
Toque (sounds like a VERY nice restaurant but maybe too gourmet? i.e. may go away hungry)
Les Trois Petits Bouchons (good wine list)
La Salle a Manger (alot of good reviews on Yelp)
Thanks for any comments!
